Culture, Strategy & Planning

  • How does your leadership style influence culture in your business?
  • What are the positive trademark behaviours that would significantly shift the culture of your business and your leadership effectiveness?

When you're running a business you need strategies to ensure you're doing the right things with your people and for your business.  You want your people to enjoy their work because that's when they're most productive and you get to see the magic happen.

Businesses are more successful when their leadership, strategy and business plans are captured in a way that is easily explainable to everyone in the business, engages and builds a culture that sets you apart from your competitors,  Where the layers of confidentiality are protected without losing the motivation of a shared purpose.  A good plan is like your GPS, it shows you alternative ways of getting to where you want to go and helps you choose the best route.


  • Identify your personal long term goals
  • Integrate the goals of all stakeholders in the business
  • Document your strategic and business plans in a way that works for you
  • Know your short, medium and long term focus areas that will get you where you want to go
  • Convert these into financial and operational plans for the current year
  • Be able to talk with confidence about what you're wanting to achieve
  • Share your plans with your team so they fell engaged and part of the success
